I’m a big fan of twitter and am intrigued at its use and potential for trading.
I’ve heard about it being used as an input to algorithmic trading and there are sites
like stocktwits.com that aggregate tweets by ticker, but this one is very US-centric.
Is there a similar service with a focus on UK stocks (or interest in setting one up?) Also UK-based traders who are actively tweeting about their trades or a UK-based news service on twitter, other than the obvious FT/BBC sources. I’ve found it surprisingly hard to find good people to follow on twitter with a UK focus.
